My husband and I ate here twice as it was so good. The food is tasty, hot and plentiful and the apple pie divine. The prices were reasonable with a great selection of wine. Both nights we were welcomed by the owner (I think), and the staff were friendly, nothing was too much trouble. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending it.

We arrived at Goloso at 20h45 on Saturday night having had a nasty experience at a restaurant down the road from it. We were seated promptly and I immediately informed the manager of our experience and that we were hungry. He arranged our drinks within minutes and soon after arrived at our table with a.complimentary foccacia to tide us over. Our mains arrived within half an hour and with a smile. My ravioli was delicious as were the fungi pasta, Goloso pasta and the lemon chicken breast dish. We left feeling satisfied and cared for. Will definitely be supporting this establishment.

Dinner at Golosos is special. Asher our waiter was welcoming, chatty and friendly. The menu is fairly comprehensive and all pasta is home made. We ordered a Californian pizza and a pasta Carbonara. Both were divine. The thin based pizza had plenty of topping in the form of bacon, feta and avo while the home made pasta was awesome with just the right amount of sauce. Wine prices are reasonable off a compact wine list. The restaurant has a well stocked bar for the pre dinner drinks before settling down to a great meal.

Excellent Italian restaurant in Sea Point! the food is wonderful, the homemade pasta is really home-made and the service is great even on the day we arrived near closing time. We liked so much that the next day we returned with friends.

Dear Guest

Thank you so much for your visit and this awesome review. It was a pleasure having you here!
As you noted, we do indeed make all our pasta by hand right here on the premises. We take care to use only the best Italian "00" flour and locally sourced free range eggs to make our pasta. It's how we have been doing things since we opened nearly 8 years ago, and we aim to continue doing this for as long as we can.
Thank you also for noting our good service. We appreciate it!

We look forward to seeing you again.
Best regards
